When you read the Ten Commandments, you do realize that there is a God, and it is the God of the Bible. If you think about it, the Ten Commandments teach you how you should live your life and provide the basis for the modern law-systems.

Human beings could not possibly know those things at that point in time, because it was thousands of years ago, and people didn't know the things we know now. Therefore, God dictated the Ten Commandments to Moses, and that was going to become the law. Think about it: there is more truth in one page of the Bible than there is in a whole library. That is the word of God. Jesus Christ came after Moses, and the New Testament is a continuation of the Old. Jesus Christ is God, and the demonstration is to be found in his life, in his actions, in his teachings. The New Testament completed the Old Testament. Everything you read on the Bible, everything you read about Moses and Jesus, that is the word of God. Jesus Christ is the King of Kings.
